    Hello, everyone.
    This year we got 50 red rangers for meat. I have to say out of every chicken I have ever had these are my least favorite. We keep them in a large field ( I have a great Pyrenees watching them) and they do not free range at all. They sit and wait. I have tried only feeding them a little, or a lot, or at different times of the day. No luck, they just sit. I have been on here and read about how great they are free ranging, any ideas anyone?

    I decided I will cross a buff with a naked neck for my next round of meat birds, should be friendly free-ranging big birds.

    Interesting... I wonder how many folks are getting mixed results with this hybrid.
